    Sanders

    Hey guys,
    Have any of you guys out there used a single or double drum sander and been happy with it's results? I do not want or desire an open end unit so I do not need input on those. A widebelt would be nice but not in the cards right now.

    I have used a Supermax, and was impressed with it. Did a good job. Not a belt, but close.

    Well then again I am slow to begin with too! I am beginning to realize that I may not have the cash or the fortitude to make those BIG purchases anymore. It is nice not worry about any bills. I guess my point is do they work and are they worth even having in the shop?

    Paul. Unless you are doing lots od panels, [cabinet doors] probably not.
    If I was to do it again, I'd probably go with the woodmaster or general.

    Talking Dual Drum Sanders

    We own a 25" Woodtek dual drum sander and have been very pleased with it.

    We use 80 grit on the front drum and 120 grit on the rear drum. It has been very reliable over the past 4-5 years.

    We would highly recommend it.

    Are these type of sanders worth it for sanding of parts before assembly (to cut down on ROS time), sanding moldings (flat of course), and surfacing highly figured wood? I do some doors but not a lot. Most of my doors involve a flat panel made from resawing...so there is some need for quick finishing there. I guess the idea of hogging down stock will not be my case....it is primarily a finishing type machine.
